    Before I kill off my fish Is this wood safe?

    I have these pieces of wood that were used in my spider tank and I’m wondering if it’s safe to use in my aquarium. I have a feeling the one at the front isn’t as it’s very light and feels and possibly porous. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I know it will need to be thoroughly cleaned...

    Kuhli Loach identification

    Does anyone know what type of Kuhli Loach this guy is? He's always just had a blue/grey body with no stripes. I've had him for over a year now and still unsure. He's very healthy and comes out to eat every day. Any thoughts?

    Help identifying fish please

    Hi guys, so I picked up this tank today which came with these fish. Any help identifying them would be much appreciated. I bought this tank to rehouse my Angel fish as my other tank is 60l and too small for them when they grow so I need to know if these fish are compatible with them.

    Plant identification and care?

    Hi all, Looking to improve my plant health, thought the best way to start would be to get some help in identifying each. Water tests show co2 levels are good, light is adequate for easy-care plants, nitrates hover between 10-15 before water changes. I’ve ordered some flourish root tabs in case...

    What in the world is killing all my fish

    The pleco has since died and I assume the other is going to be gone very soon. I haven’t had any luck identifying this but it seems to affect every fish in the tank besides the tetra which I’m not surprised cause those guys are known to be extremely hardy. Honestly expecting this entire tank to...
